Unique is a word overused when describing homes, but to me here it's fully warranted.

You would be hard-pushed to find a recently built home in a more unique and idyllic location. The home has everything family buyers tell us they are looking for. However, the stand-out feature for me is the position of the home on the development which makes you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside.

With open views to the front, a range of nature on your literal doorstep, walks up and down the canal, a children's play area, a sports field and a path to the Guild Wheel I'm not sure what box hasn't been ticked.

The exterior of the home is characterful and when you enter the hallway it sets the tone for the scale and quality of what you will find throughout. The double-height ceilings with the Velux window flood the area with natural light. In my opinion, the vendors have carried on the character with sympathetic and stylish decoration making the home tastefully stand out from the rest.

The lounge faces the front and the windows not only flood the room with natural light but also make the most of the views. The longer look out of this window the better the view gets with all manner of birdlife coming and going from the lake.

The rear room is the hub of family life with open-plan family space. This room provides a well-planned out kitchen design which will be of interest to home cooks and bakers alike. The centre of the room is the dining area with double doors out to the landscaped rear garden, perfect for summer in-out living.

At the other end, there is a snug which has a second seating and television area. Whether it be for family mealtimes, homework at the dining table or for the children to relax, play and watch television after school this room really does cover it all.

There is also access to the garage from the kitchen which whilst a simple feature will I'm sure prove to be very welcome and practical on a drizzly or cold winter's day.

On the first floor, all of the bedrooms are a good size. The master bedroom has been fitted with a range of wardrobes with a cleverly concealed television in the middle which maintains the sleek clean lines of the room. This room also makes the most of the views to the front and comes with its own en suite shower room.

The other three bedrooms are doubles and share access to the four-piece family bathroom which includes a free-standing shower.

One area the sellers have invested wisely in is the rear garden. This space now offers an artificial grass lawn, perfect for all-year play, as well as seating areas and a useful covered deck area for summer or even winter dining. There are also a couple of raised beds for those that are interested in gardening

To the front, there is off-street parking for a couple of cars.

If you are looking for a home in Cottam then this one is a must-see. I'm sure you like me will be blown away by the location before you even enter the front door.
